Loaded Nacho Potatoes
We love potatoes. And we are constantly coming up with new ways to include them in our meals. Today’s recipe for loaded potato nachos takes everything you love about nachos and smothers them over crisp, seasoned, potatoes.Jump to Recipe
It may sound a tad strange, but trust me…you won’t want to go back to traditional nachos any time soon. I first started topping potatoes when the hubby and I completed our first Whole30. If you aren’t familiar the Whole30 is basically a short term, limited food diet that really focuses in on clean eating.
In order to make some of our favorite meals work, like fajitas (check out my Clean Eating Sheetpan Fajitas), nachos, or gyros, I had to come up with creative ways to replace the refined carbs used as “vessels” for those dishes. So, instead of tortillas, chips, or pitas, I used potatoes. The result was some seriously tasty, “cleaner” versions of our favorite meals.
How to Make Loaded Potato Nachos
As the name implies first you need some potatoes. I recommend using redskins because they roast beautifully without needing to be peeled. Wash your potatoes and slice them thinly.
Next, you are going to season your potatoes, coat them in olive oil, and toss them on a baking sheet in the oven. While the taters cook it’s time to prep your nacho toppings.
You can use whatever nacho toppings your hungry heart desires…there is seriously no way to go wrong here.
Here’s what I put on my loaded potato nachos:
- Taco Meat (seasoned grass fed beef or venison)
- Cheddar Cheese
- Diced tomatoes
- Taco Sauce
- Sour Cream
- Chopped Spinach
After the potatoes are cooked, throw your meat, cheese, and onions on top. Pop the pan back into the oven for about 8 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted. Once the cheese has melted pull them out of the oven and top with all your remaining toppings.
Seriously. So. Good.
I am getting hungry just writing this.
